Please share

The minority leaders of the House of Representatives drawn from all opposition parties have disowned 60 lawmakers who, on Monday, called for the resignation of the Peoples Democratic Party’s acting National Chairman, Umar Damagum, for alleged anti-party activities.

Recall that the 60 parliamentarians under the auspices of the Coalition of Opposition Lawmakers, on Monday in Abuja, threatened to quit the PDP if Damagum does not leave office to pave the way for the appointment of a new acting chairman from the North Central, the zone of the suspended National Chairman of the party, Senator Iyorchia Ayu.

Reacting via a statement issued and co-signed on Tuesday by the Minority Leader and leader of the caucus, Kingsley Chinda; Deputy Minority Leader, Ali Madaki; Minority Whip, Ali Isah and Deputy Minority Whip, George Ozodinobi, the lawmakers described the Ikenga Ugochinyere-led coalition as a body unknown to the parliament.

The statement read, “Our attention has been drawn to a press release by the group and we state unequivocally that the minority caucus and the PDP caucus dissociates themselves from the said press statement.
